Cystic Fibrosis

Cystic fibrosis is a life-shortening inherited disease, affecting almost 10,000 people in the UK. Even though life expectancy has increased, only half live to see their 40th birthday

Now here’s the challenge that is being made by Super Tramp, who sell trampolines:

Knit leg warmers for trampoliners

Super tramp will offer them for sale via their website and the money raised will be going to the Cystic Fibrosis Trust. It’s a bit involved I know but if you would like to knit the legwarmers then here’s a good use for them AND someone else who will deal with the end product for you. HERE’s the pattern

See here for full details and to get the address to send them when finished

Charity Website

If you are the organiser of this charity, please check out this page and then add to it or indeed ask for it to be re-arranged to include what you would like to see. We must ask though that you concentrate on what is required from knitters and crocheters and not list other types of fund raising here. People can go to your website if they wish to become more involved. Just use the form below and we shall make every effort to produce a page to your liking – there is no charge as we would not dream of taking any of the money raised for your charity.
